Dawn Comes After Even the Longest Night
23x23" unframed fiber collage with freestyle machine stitching. In the spring of 2021, I struggled with health issues and depression that had me wondering if I would ever make another prayer flag. Ultimately, through practices, patience and openness to what the Great Collaborator had in store, I found my self able to feel gratitude one day for the depression and challenges, knowing these had something to teach me. A few days later, in a thrift store, I happened upon a yellow lace dress that practically jumped into my hands. The next day, in the studio, this flag was formed around one of the roses in the lace.
